Music’s Mitosis

Music’s Mitosis is a music trivia podcast. Each episode features a guest band, with bandmates competing against each other for trivia victory!

It’s basically a show full of indie musicians nerding out on music trivia and history.

Our aim is to celebrate the music that influenced these musicians and comes through in their sound.

#18 • Par for the Course

February 25, 2016

DJ team Par for the Course lay down an awesome soundtrack at Nouveau Palais on thursday nights in Montreal. Eric Dougherty (also an amazing musician and singer p.s.) and Jacob Spector are the perfect duo to ask, “Is the Macarena relevant?” and “Do you think Harry Nilsson would make a good drinking buddy?” So come on inside, we’ll get you a martini and find out.

Songs we played: Glen Campbell: Wichita Lineman, Los Del Rio (ft. Bayside Boys Remix): Macarena, The Microphones: I Felt Your Shape.

#17 • Katie Moore

February 3, 2016

Katie Moore has been on everyone’s albums. From The Barr Brothers to Socalled and that doesn’t include the live shows! But she is also a singer and musician in her own right and we had her and her partner Andrew Horton (also her bass player and fishing buddy!) in for some trivia and to discuss her latest album, Fooled By the Fun.

You can buy the album here:

The songs we played: Heart Like a Wheel, Chain-Link, Fooled By the Fun.

#15 • Live Special – uRockaoke at MDP

July 27, 2015

This episode was recorded live at The Marché des Possibles in Montreal. The guitarsmiths we tested are Chris McCarron, Jordey Tucker and Michael Felber. In addition to such bands as Stars, The Dears, Socalled and The Barr Brothers  they are members of the elite group of musicians that form Urockaoke a live karaoke band that is as good as it is fun. We have been to many of their parties and let me tell you you could not do something better for your staff party/fundraiser/corporate bonding weekend retreat/wedding/barmitzvah/whatever. They are for hire, so you should probably hire them. They are the best wedding band on the market. Just sayin’. Ok, enough of the gushing, let’s get to the trivia!

We’re gonna take a wee break for the rest of the summer and let Amy pop out a baby, so we will see you back here in September with some fresh episodes! Bon vacances! XX
